Frequently Asked Questions


​Q. What is to stop the client form selling the vehicle?

A. Make Me Mobile keep a Personal Properties Securities Registration on the Vehicle (PPSR) so it cannot legally be sold without our permission and knowledge.  This is to stop fraudulent people from applying, then selling the Vehicle to get the financial benefit and leaving the client with no transport.  The NDIS will only provide vehicle funding for a client every 10 years.


​Q. Does the NDIS pay the clients vehicle insurance?

A. No.  This needs to be paid by the client from their income or their pension.


​Q. Does the NDIS pay the registration fee for the client’s vehicle?

A. No but in NSW registration is free for anyone on a pension. Check with your State transport department.


Q. Does the NDIS pay for the servicing of the vehicle?

A. No.  This needs to be budgeted buy the client/parents/guardians/carers from the client’s income or pension.  We are looking into this to see what we can do to limit the costs of servicing.


Q. When should I apply to Make Me Mobile for funding?

A. You should send Make Me Mobile an email to let us know of your circumstance and request a Sign-Up Pack.  Once you receive your Sign-Up Pack, fill it out providing all the information required.  Once you have all the information required and the check list completed, send it to our PO Box listed on our website.  Once the Board have reviewed the information you will be sent an email informing you of our decision.  If you are accepted, you can use your email to support your NDIS application for vehicle modification funding.


​Q. Does it have to be a KIA?

A. Your circumstance will be considered but otherwise yes.


Q. Do I have to be a NDIS client?

A. Yes.  You must be a NDIS client to be eligible to receive the vehicle modification funding (approximately $35,000 from the NDIS) to then be eligible for Make Me Mobile funding (approximately $55,000).  


Q. How long does it take to get a wheelchair access vehicle?

A.  It varies, it can take 6 to 10 weeks for the modification to be completed.  Currently it is taking 10 months to get a KIA into the country.  


Q. Who will be doing the modification?

A. Freedom Motors is our preferred supplier but if they can't keep up with the demand, we will be seeking assistance from other modifiers.


Q. What will it cost me?

A. If approved by the NDIS for vehicle modification funding, the NDIS will pay for the modification. If you are approved by the Board of MMMC and we have the funding available, Make Me Mobile will pay for the vehicle. Anything outside these two parameters we cannot comment on.


Q. How does the privacy policy affect me as a client?

A. The privacy policy is so you are aware of our commitment to the Client to protect their information that they are providing us.  This is legislation that we must follow. 


Q. Why does Make Me Mobile want my image and what will it be used for?

A. Make Me Mobile require up to three photos of you that you choose to allow us to use on social media and our website. This makes raising money for these vehicles a lot easier for us and more real to the public because they can see who their money is helping.  Their money is not going to something they can’t see! Without these photos it is very difficult to raise the money for these vehicles.
